Dance in the Rain - Linnie Blooms

A small rainbow canvas to brighten your day!

1. Apply blue gelato to the canvas background. Add a spritz of water to help blend the color with a paintbrush to create a splotchy background. Set aside to dry.

2. Use permanent black ink to stamp a quote onto clear shrink plastic. Punch a small hole at the top using a hole punch so that you can hang the charm. Use a heat gun to shrink the stamped quote.

3. Apply, white texture paste to the canvas and use texture card #5 to make horizontal striations to form the rain. Allow to dry. Next, add a cloud like mound of texture paste to the top of the canvas. After the paint has dried, apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to add sparkle to the clouds.
4. Next, use gelatos to color the rain in a rainbow pattern. Dip the paintbrush in water to help spread the colors. Lastly, when the paint has dried, apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel selectively through a limited scattering of spots while holding the dot stencil securely.

5. Finally, embellish the rainbow with translucent buttons and hang the shrink plastic charm from clear thread.
